Department of Environmental and Population Health

The Department of Environmental and Population Health (DEPH) promotes the health and well-being of farm and laboratory animals through environmentally appropriate husbandry, and population based preventive medical practices and therapies. By modeling evidence-based animal and veterinary care and advising animal caretakers of those principles, its members strive to enhance the viability of farms, stables, and laboratory animal facilities while providing students with practical experience and knowledge.
